Spring is Sprung (Don't Let the Snow Fool You)

posted Mar 27, 2015, 6:11 AM by Chuck Caragianes

Good afternoon—

Spring is definitely here, even though the snow piles and forecasts may suggest otherwise.  Our spring musical Bye Bye Birdie was an enormous success over the past two weekends and a major shout out goes to the more than 50 students who participated and for dozens of adults who helped support the production in every way imaginable.  Our 10th Graders completed the English/Language Arts portion of the MCAS test this week and put in great effort on this essential graduation requirement.  Our sports teams have all been practicing diligently for the spring season and the enthusiasm of the participants is outstanding.

Of course, events are on the horizon and news of note is always happening.  Below you’ll find a information on what is coming in the days ahead.

Maynard High Students are Getting Ready for a Musical Journey to Washington DC

This spring our band and chorus students will be travelling to our nation’s capitol for a week of competition, learning and fun.

 The trip committee is holding a mandatory parent and student meeting on Monday, April 6th, from 6:30 to 7:30 in the High School auditorium.  The committee will go over the trip itinerary and review final instructions.

To make sure every student is outfitted appropriately we are asking that every band uniform, tux, dress or regalia be turned in by students who will not be using them so if you have a currently enrolled band or chorus student who is not going on the DC trip, please have them return their uniforms, gowns, all tux parts, any parts from past years that linger with a $10 dry cleaning fee to Mrs. Blanchard in the band room in an effort to clean and then attire students who presently lack a uniform for the upcoming trip.

9th Grade PARCC Test Cancelled and Other Testing News

After recent discussions by the district with the Massachusetts Department of Elementary & Secondary Education it has been determined that the PARCC Test will not be administered to Maynard High School 9th graders this year.  Most 9th graders will be taking the MCAS Science Test in Physics in early June as scheduled.  8th graders will be taking a paper and pencil version of PARCC as scheduled and required by the state next week on March 30th, March 31st and April 1st as well as the following Monday and Tuesday on April 6th & 7th

It’s a busy time of year and the students and staff of Maynard High School continue to learn and grow as a community each and every day.

Take care—
